- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I'm very experienced and well-trained and do not participate as an in-network provider with insurance companies. They pay very poorly and also demand to know personal details about sessions. In order to be paid fairly and protect my clients' confidentiality, I'm not in the networks. However, if you have out of network benefits, they may cover my services. Also, if there is financial difficulty in affording my fee, I will consider a reduced fee on a case by case basis.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Contact me and we will have a call at no charge to get to know each other a bit and see if we are a good fit. If so, I suggest trying a single session in person to better get a feel if we would work well together. Being comfortable with your therapist is very important in terms of the success of the work together.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
After my graduate degree I spent 7 years in voluntary, post-graduate training at an institute and also have extensive family therapy training. I paid supervisors for years after graduate school, out of my own pocket and not required, simply to learn from senior therapists and be the best I can. I have always been committed to learning and improving my craft.
